That's handy, a camper without a bed! stupid

All they've done is add an elevating roof big enough for four adults having a communal hug, ripped out the seating to be replaced by a standard caravan table and some horrible-looking 1970's seating that wouldn't have looked out of place in a doctor's waiting room at the time.

Also don't you just love the 'all mod cons' kitchen? A £10 cooker and a washing-up bowl that looks as if it came from B&Q's reduced bin.

Now if this was April ...

The only real way a camper could be based on a Disco 3 is for the factory to add a sliding side door like a Mitsubishi Delica, then hand it over to Dormobile or whoever for a proper conversion. The Disco after all has a height advantage inside over most other 4x4's. Now that I could see as a best seller!

Land Rover Denmark - must try harder. No

i'd agree, you can get some nice german built camper bodied trucks, biomobile etc for the price.

i have a suspicion its probabily over the weight for a disco anyway

That is very nice. But you have to be mentle to pay that. affraid Its £5,000 Max. Its 13 years old affraid

This here is still too much money but it is a better buy.

you can't price overland vehicles like that - i'd expect alot more than 5k for my Iveco and its 20 years old, LHD coach builts models go for over 20k euro . Go look at the price of a merc LA91

But i'd agree its high and has a limited market as its a 1 off. My concern would be its overall weight and the fact that the chassis has been stretched - not tht its stretched as thats done all the time but by who ?

Tom

Why do you need a bed when you sleep outside when you have too much wine, yes, I have seen the pictures.

Solution: just drink more wine then you won't miss a bed.
